The Round Lake Library offers digital access to audiobooks and music for our patrons. Please be aware that having overdue items or charges in excess of $5 on your library account will prevent you from borrowing or downloading digital material.

Overdrive eAudiobooksoverdrive

Overdrive allows SALS library patrons to borrow e-audiobooks (and ebooks) for use on their computers, tablets, smartphones, and other devices. Available titles can be borrowed for a 14 day period, after which they automatically expire — so there are never any late fees! You can reserve checked-out titles, and be notified by email when they become available.

Login with the barcode number from your SALS library card (no spaces). Find app information, device-specific instructions and more on Overdrive’s Help page. See more about who can use the service and limitations on use on the SALS Overdrive FAQ page.


Freegal is a free music service available through the library. Freegal offers access to about 9 million songs and over 15,000 music videos. There is no software to download, and there are no digital rights management (DRM) restrictions.

Patrons of the Round Lake Library and Round Lake Library’s Malta Branch can download up to 3 MP3 songs per week. These files are yours to keep! Music videos are also available for download in MP4 format; each video counts as 2 downloads toward your weekly limit.

Simply log in with the barcode number from your Round Lake or Malta library card (no spaces). For answers to general questions, technical specifications and apps, and more visit Freegal’s FAQ page.
